    Fess up, who snores? :D

    The boyfriend recorded me snoring last night and it was shocking. I sounded like an elephant in distress! :nonod:

    It seems to have gotten worse since the last time someone recorded me a couple of years ago. I never used to snore on my sides, only on my back, but now I snore terribly on my side and even worse on my back! When I lie down, I can feel my nose closing up and I'm wondering if it's worth trying to get a referral to a specialist? It's keeping the boyfriend up, which isn't fair on him, and I am worried it's affecting my sleep too - I've snored myself awake a good few times recently :(

    You can get special tapes you place on the sides on your nose to open up the nostrils. Go and see your doctor and they might suggest you try those first.

    I snore like a Rhino blowing a foghorn!

    I did have a septoplasty years ago, infact 2 of them. Whilst my breathing has improved, because I lay on my back the fat on me neck leans on the throat (Can't remember the name) and that causes the snoring. Because I work in the NHS I did ask the sleep therapy nurse for a free CPAP machine :biggrin5:

    I have lost count of the dig in the ribs and pillows to the face because of me snoring by the missus.

    *Puts hand up*

    Snore like a pig, move around like I'm running a marathon and chat away occasionally.

    For the sake of my husbands sanity and our marriage, as a light sleeper he is forced to sleep in the other room!!

    I am, and always have been, a very quiet sleeper. My mum used to prod me when I was a baby to make sure I was ok and, in later years, I've had boyfriends do the same! :eek:

    My OH, on the other hand, is terrible for snoring - back, front, sides..... No matter how he lies, he snores. We have to sleep in seperate rooms because I would end up killing him otherwise. :(

    I'm worried that the boyfriend will insist we sleep in separate rooms which is the last thing I want. I hate sleeping on my own, I'm quite a cuddly sleeper and I like having someone there. Better get this sorted, fast :frown5:

    I have slept in a seperate bed before and not kicking someone while stretching is quite a forgotten luxury. :p

    Buy him some ear plugs. I did my missus and she now only complains about 'sleep gruffing' which I am sure she is lying! :D

    My husband was like this. Went on like this for a good couple of years and we ended up in separate beds almost every night. We tried the strips and they actually made him snore worse! He got referred to specialists eventually, had tests done and has been diagnosed with sleep apnoea.

    Worth getting it checked out, especially as it's disrupting your sleep now.

    That's what I was thinking too - it's better to be safe than sorry. My aunt got her adenoids removed when she was younger cus they had swollen up, causing breathing problems when lying down and she has terrible for snoring. It's a problem that runs in the family unfortunately :(

    Here's a wee indiscretion, my wife tends to snore. :eek:

    It never fails to amaze me how something so pretty can make such an awful sound.

    The boyfriend said almost exactly the same thing. I didn't know whether to feel complimented or mortified! :eek:

    Well I'm not usually one for advising anyone of the best of all possible choices, but on this occasion I suggest you feel 'Complimented' because there's going to be a very long period of time you're going to be mortified. ;)

    Never snored a day in my life ;) ok, so maybe that's a lie but I tend to have more of a problem with teeth grinding and punching :eek: My oh on the other hand makes the bed vibrate he snores so badly. It only ever used to be when he had been drinking and now its all the time. It certainly causes some rows as it can keep me awake for hours or wakes me up. Frustratingly he is reluctant to do anything about it:mad:
    I think you're doing the right thing getting it looked into.
